This is such a beautiful vintage necklace. The graduated beads have such clarity and sparkle and are a solidly weighty. They are glorious and of the highest quality. Whether in the daylight or at night the sparkle is just wonderful. Each bead has a tiny round spacer bead in between and there are also irregular disc shaped beads and silvertone spacer beads to add detail and dimension.

The beads are graduated and the largest beads measure approx. 20mm. The smallest measure 8mm. This necklace is in the classic Matinee length of 24 inches long, spring ring clasp and in perfect condition.

A little history of rock crystal quartz as I find it fascinating: rock crystal is among the most desirable transparent quartzes, a clear, colorless quartz from the Rhine Valley in Germany & Austria. This was the original 'Rhine stone' that fueled the costume jewelry industry and the glass stones are modeled after. Rock crystal can be identified from glass as it is heavier, harder, colder and is doubly refractive--the appearance of the string through the beads is doubled. The crystals used for crystal ball gazing in ancient times were probably rock crystal, this practice was known as scrying. Rock crystal is also believed to be a symbol of purity.
